. state government is here. we are doing what we need to dofment we are coordinating with fema. i want to thank the administrator for being here, for the input he's already had in helping to make our operation betterment we'll move on from here. what i said yesterday i really mean. there's got to be sorrow. you see that in -- and the president has seen that today, in the eyes and faces of the folks he met. that sorrow is appropriate. we suffered some loss. luckily we haven't suffered that much loss of life and we thank god for that. but we have suffered losses, and this is the worst storm i have seen in my lifetime in the state. but we cannot permit that sorrow to replace the resilience i know all new jerseyans have. so we will get up and we'll get this thing rebuilt and we'll put things back together because that's what this state is all about and always has been all about. for all of you who are here, i met a bunch of you today, who disregarded my admonition, get the hell out of here, you know, you are forgiven this time. you are forgiven this time but not for much longer. we got to
for fema loan. these loans are typically a very low interest rate around 4% interest rate loans that help these consumers rebuild their properties. not a prerequisite for taking loans is in the future, they have to purchase their flood insurance policy so this doesn't happen again. >> host: so you represent mortgage brokers. >> guest: insurance agents and brokers. >> host: has your group estimated yet the cost to them? >> guest: we have not yet. this storm is such a colossal nature that it's going to take a while to get our arms around the total cost. the estimates i've seen soap are but the damage is anywhere from 5 billion to 20 billion. i've seen some estimates as high as 20 billion in damages. now i think that's even premature because we've been in contact with fema and day right now, and i think correctly, they are focused 100% on recovering and disaster assistance, helping people on the ground. they haven't even begun to put pen to paper and holy calculator out and start adding up the cost. and so, these estimates would be 5 billion to 20 billion are kind of from 30,000-foot level,
. it takes a whole mix of people whether it's the department of defense and even fema having roles to play in that. bob fenton, the assistant chief of fema, used to be the division chief in division 9. he is no stranger to this area, born and raised here, this is his home and so he does have a care and an interest in this community and beyond. and so with that it is hard to fill being his replacement at the regional level because not only to fill his shoes all the great work he did in this region, but also because when you see the size difference, it's a little hard to fit in there. but this this i want to introduce bob fenton, the response head for fema coming in from dc to help support this and moderate the panel. thank you. (applause). >> well, appreciate it. appreciate the opportunity to be back with friends and back in san francisco. and i appreciate the opportunity to be your lunch speaker. as i always say, lunch is one of may five most important meals of the day so thank you for that. let me introduce my panelists. here to my left, we have a great group here to talk about stor
around the country. i we have a discussion about fema and also one about u.s. foreign policy in asia. >> we don't have the highest mountains or a disney world. what we have is a great state. this is a sugar maple in for a hard rock maple. the average is 2%. what we do to start the season is drill hole to win the tree about an inch deep. this tree here in 2012, right here you see that you can't get the sprout. that means that that tree is healthy. the scar tissue below and there is scar tissue above -- so it won't run the sap at this point. semester we will go for the other side of the tree. we will do this in 2011 in 2010. you might think that we are hurting the truth, but we can assure that the trees have been tapped 100 years in a row and they are still producing. >> more from vermont tv this weekend. as booktv and c-span's local content vehicles look behind-the-scenes at the history and literary life of the vermont state capitol, montpelier, vermont, on booktv and c-span2. sunday at 5:00 p.m. on american history tv on c-span3. hurricane sandy is now believed to be one of the costl
new jersey in surveying the damage. that is where government works, fema, a program governor romney called for eliminating during the republican debate -- guest: not all, absolutely false. -- governor romney said that -- he talked about not funding in -- guest: governor romney said that, talk about not funding it. only government has the opportunity to provide those services certainly in an emergency like this. fema has to respond immediately. you saw the first responders -- police, fire, the municipal services that have to respond so quickly and so well. our hearts and thoughts go out to those affected communities and the president is responding quickly. he will get back on to the campaign trail on saturday in the commonwealth. let's go back to a lot of what barbour had to say in her presentation. went for barack obama was because they were responding to the bush presidency. during the bush presidency he took eight surplus from a year 2000 with -- took a surplus from the year 2000 and turned it into deficit by imposing the bush tax including millionaires. what governor romney is pr
better than anybody about fema and about the red cross. is he going to tell us about that at the bottom of the hour. in the meantime three days before we do the final voting, election day just three days away, the candidates are out in the battleground states. we're going to talk about that one thing that the obama campaign has not talked about, even though members of fox news team have tried to get him on the record, mr. president, what did you know about what happened in benghazi, libya on september the 11th, 2012? people aren't asking that. we're asking. we're not getting any answers. but today we have got another smoking gun because the white house before had said, you know, we didn't really have any real warnings of trouble there another smoking gun. more warnings. >> gretchen: apparently they even talked to suspending operations completely at the consulate. you know there were two locations in benghazi. hut consulate and then you had the cia operation house which people, i guess, didn't know was a cia operation house which is about a mile away. and they were talking and in the day
with the city. fema is well represented and we have several defense coordinating officers here over the past couple of days. certainly the california national guard is represented heavily here. obviously they are going to be the first guys to respond to a disaster and they have several interesting roles not only from a state perspective but as they get federalized or with the dual status commander managing federal response and federal authorities of military authorities flowing in. and most significantly, we're represented today with the commander of northern command, general jackoby. as you know, defense report to civil authorities is not a primary mission area for the department of defense. we have codified it in policy over the years and certainly things have advanced since 9/11 and hurricane katrina, but there has been a real gap in detailed preplanning for emergency response, particularly as it works its way down the chain into the tactical forces that would respond, most specifically i think those on active duty. this is an area that we don't tend to pay a lot of attention to and ver
help from fema, the federal emergency management agency. the homeland security secretary, janet napolitano, who's in new york city, says that's only just the beginning. but many residents of staten island which was inundated by the storm's tidal surge, say they're getting virtually no help yet. and their desperation is now turning to anger. cnn's brian todd is on the island. he's joining us live. brian, tell us what's going on. >> reporter: wolf, we're in the new dorf beach section cedar grove avenue. this place is still flooded out even after the waters receded. people just barely able to kind of wade through the water, try to get to homes and assess damage. you've got a church that's flooded out here to your left, my right. and our photo journalist can pan back over this way down marine way. look down here with just the debris and people trying to gather things and bring things out and clear their homes of all the wreckage. what we know now, wolf, is that the bodies of two young boys who were washed away from their mother during the storm have been found. they were found in a
. sir, even though before the storm's full force had hit had, you had appealed to fema to send crews equipped to remove downed trees, try to help restore power lines as quickly as possible. how is fema responding? >> i visited with fema yet at the federal staging area. i will say initially i was somewhat concerned because there were some forest service assets on the ground. they obviously were involved in a search and rescue mission. that's critically important. as the search and rescue mission begins to wind down, i had emphasized the need for the forest service to get on the streets. you cannot drive anywhere on long island or virtually anywhere on long island without having to detour because there is a tree blocking the way and a tree that has brought power lines down with it. so i'd asked fema to ratchet up their response to help with the removal of downed trees. about an hour later, i must say, i received word from fema that they had asked the national forest service to not only deploy assets but deploy additional assets. there are about 40 forest service personnel on long islan
's a total loss. we have 3,200 fema personnel working this storm in the northeast. and more are on their way. 11,800 national guard already are deployed in the impacted states. and we expect more to come. as was mentioned, 258 red cross shelters have opened. nine federal search and rescue teams have been deployed, supplementing state and local efforts. and they have searched more than 3,300 structures in queens and 870 structures here in staten island. with respect to other assets that are coming in, we all know that power remains the fundamental issue. you should know that president obama has said that all of the federal government is here to help. and that means the department of defense. and the department of defense yesterday was air lifting utility crews with their equipment here to new york, to new jersey and other places impacted by the storm. and more of those air lifts we anticipate to be coming over the coming days. there's an 800 number people can call. 1-800-621-3362. 1-800-621-3362. you can go to disast disasterassistance.gov. or indeed if you go to a disaster recovery center, a
. the house and senate will come in for a pro-forma sessions with no legislation scheduled. fema headquarters held a conference call about the storm. mr. fugate said it has enough money for an initial response to the storm. this is half an hour. >> thank you. good afternoon, everyone. thank you for dialing in today. two main administrators, craig fugate and dr. rick knab. each of them will have opening comments and then we will take questions. please limit yourself to one question and no follow-ups. with that, let me turkish -- turned over to the administrator. >> good afternoon. as hurricane sandy keeps approaching and moving closer to the coast, we are going to be rapidly moving from preparing to support response operations. we have been moving commodities, bottled waters, meals, blankets, cots, and volunteer agencies moving their supplies in. today we have been looking at generator needs. we already had a pretty considerable number of generators and route to the area. these are the larger generators, the type you need to run critical facilities, as well as high water generators you need fo
on the upper floors. sound familiar? fema and homeland security say they are pushing aid sphaft pass fast as they can, but the people in these boroughs are saying they are beg for it and not getting it. >> i haven't heard from fema, the coast guard, no one. it's puzzling. >> i'm angry and fed up. what are we? is this america? i don't know. i don't know. i don't like it. we are going down hill. >> i came here four, five years ago, we came here for a better life and opportunity. and this is what we came from. this is ridiculous. it's not how it's suppose to be. >> the borough president is lashing out at the feds to the red cross and michael broom berg's decision to go ahead with a marathon saying this is no time for a parade. a marathon is a parade. we have two feet of mud where you used to be able to walk. we have boats in the middle of streets, the houses are flattened and we have lost lives and they want to hold a parade. mayor bloomberg knows the criticism is out there. he just a few minutes ago said the marathon will go forward. people in coney island wandering the streets look for gui
. plus, there is this thing, the president showed up in new jersey with the guy who runs fema. fema is the operation that runs the federal flood insurance program. a lot of people down along the jersey shore and long island as well, they have insurance for flooding through federal government. there could be tens of billions of dollars worth of damage and tens of billions of dollars worth of claims. but did you realize this? right now in the kitty of that particular flood program, they've got $3.8 billion. a lot of it is in loans and they still owe $18 billion from katrina. >> peter: what will be necessary, unfortunately it appears, is that there needs to be congressional authorization, that the president would have to go back to the congress and get additional money to fund the program going forward. we know that with regard to katrina, it cost about $3.8 billion. irene, $1.8 billion. we don't understand what this is going to be costing. maybe as great as katrina at this point. >> steve: absolutely. >> gretchen: there is an argument about federal versus state. some said the states s
-800-621-fema and disasterassistance.gov funding is continued to be made available and when we talk about those dollars, this is money that has been direct posited. -- deposited. as the numbers keep going up, they are not dollars that are just approved. with that, in turn it over to charlie with the red cross. >> we want to give you an update on the particular activities in new york and new jersey. i want to would knowledge that i know this is a frustrating time of the people who have been affected by this storm and we want everyone to know we're doing everything possible to provide aid and comfort to thousands and we have had people in place since before the storm made landfall. i do not want to, in any way, diminish the impact of those in other states. the red cross has a large relief operations in new york and new jersey as we learn about what the neighborhoods are that have a need. as power comes back on, awareness is increasing in terms of the areas of need and we're putting plans in place to provide people with food, water, relief supplies, and comfort. a massive feeding effort is underwa
's at the forecast, back to you. >> all right sir, thank you very much. >>> fema has activated the search and rescue team. crews are waiting to get word as to where they may be heading. melanie is live there with the details on that. melanie. >> reporter: good morning, tony, yes the fairfax urban county search and rescue team has been mobilized. they got the word around noon yesterday. they had six hours to get their gear together, get packed and come here where they are waiting to get word from fema where they are going to go. where their skills are going to be most needed to respond to the afteraffect of this storm. we to want direct all of the questions to the captain of the, chief, of the urban search and rescue team. i was impressed, got to get everything together, you don't know where you're going. >> right, we don't know officially where we'll be. we have to mobilize, 80 member time name place here since last night. we're packed up, ready to go and waiting on word from fema. >> reporter: you could stay close, you could go very far? >> yep, we have buss to move the team around. we've told them
, virginia, this weekend. as nancy cordes reports, president obama received a fema briefing the storm before laeg for new hampshire. >> we're not going to be able to be in virginia tomorrow. we're going to go to ohio instead. >> reporter: hurricane susan is forcing both campaigns to make ajumps. mitt romney canceled three haven'ts in virginia. vice president biden and first lady mivelobama also called off rallies. >> 10 days, new hampshire, 10 days! >> reporter: after getting briefed on the storm today, president obama took his hunt for votes to the live free or die states where he told a group of local teamsters new hampshire's four electoral votes could make all the difference. >> it's very clear that the other side doesn't believe. >> reporter: governor romney spent the day in all-important florida, in pensacola, home to a major nave air station, romney brought up a sore spot from the final debate. >> i made the point our navy is now smaller than any time, well, in almost 100 years. and the president's response was, well, you know, we don't use bayonets and horses anymore. and in fact we
why. i get it he wants to see the damage. please come can go and sign the check to help fema to sign over the money . chris christie was on saying that we have gotten acess to the funs we are going to need. i am not sure what touring the sight. >> steve: it is smart politics for the president. there is chris christie helping the people on the jersey shore. it is essentially politically if you talk about it he is coopting one of rom romm's visible surrogate and it is good for chris christie his state will go for barack obama example it is a win, win as the campaign starts today. chris christie was out and shook a lot of hand and a lot of people were waiting to see him there and there he was. watch this. >> you have to see the people that are affected by this. they need to see us. me, and the mayor and others who are going to be the folks to lead them back and rebuild this. there is no retreating from this. we'll assess the damage and rebuild. that's the way it is in new jersey. chris christy said the damage to the injuriesy shore was unspeakable. >> gretchen: in the meantime peter doo
, and you talk about the bipartisanship. we have seen how government has needed to step in by way of fema. romney has, you know, points of view in the primary, drudged up again by him saying fema is not necessary. then we talk about bipartisanship. you're seeing president obama standing right next to what was a number one surrogate for romney. so you know, in the end, has this natural disaster how kind of skewed or changed some of the opinions or sentiments about what romney has been saying about government not working, government being too intrusive? >> nobody's suggesting that governor christy still isn't indorsing and supporting governor romney. clearly, he has and continues to do so. the fact is -- of the matter is we don't want government, we want it to be efficient and positive and working for individuals, not against individuals. so governor romney never said we don't need fema. what he said it was the local and state governmental entities that were the first individuals in in a disaster. that's exactly true. >> let me say this, fredricka. let me say this as a member of the homelan
, will those rates go up overall? guest: not as a result of this particular storm. what fema is currently doing and have been for about 10 years, they're undergoing a massive modernization project where they are going across the country using scientific and engineering models to remap. we had a caller earlier who said that the map was old and out of date. that will not be the case. so there will be changes to flood zones over the coming years if you cannot already had a change. you may have one coming in the next two years. but it will not be the result of a particular storm or particular flooding event. these policies are different than private insurance policies in that regard. for example, if you have an auto insurance policy and get into an accident and make a claim, your insurance premiums going forward may increase because of your history. the national flood insurance program does not quite work that way. in that individual storms or flooding events don't have a direct bearing on your premium. it would only influence the map. if they go in and remap and said the elevation is lower than we
running down the briefings he has had with many of the fema and federal officials in charge of this response. the president said he has directed all arms of the federal government to make sure that the food, water and other rescue resources are in place in the areas needed up and down the east coast. more specifically, though, the president's message was to those people who would find themselves in any evacuation zone. in some of his most direct language, the president basically said if you do not heed these warnings or follow the instructions of local officials well in the president's words this could be a fatal situation. >> the most important message that i have for the public right now is, please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. when they tell you to evacuate you need to evacuate, do not delay, don't question the instructions being dna, because this is a serious storm, and it could potentially have fatal consequences if people haven't acted quickly. >> reporter: now as the president can say that it remains to be seen whether or not people will a

the head of fema, director of fema, craig fugate, who is warning folks that this is not yet over. >> this is not over. we still have more weather to deal with. hopefully people will be able to stay safe until we get to the other side of the storm.

fema, and other agencies helpful in the recovery in response efforts, the part of energy, transportation, department of homeland security, department of health and human services. obviously, everyone is aware, at this point, that this will be a big and powerful storm. all across the eastern seaboard, everybody is taking the appropriate preparations. i have spoken to the governors in the states. they have issued emergency declarations. those have been turned to run quickly. we have pre-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. we are making sure that food and water and emergency generation is available for those communities that will be hardest hit. we anticipate that the center of the storm will hit landfall sometime this evening, but because of the nature of this storm, we are certain that this will be a slow-moving process through a wide swath of the country. millions of people will be affected. the most important message i have for the public right now is, please listen to what your state and local officials are sayi
fema. soon the department will have about 680 firefighters, close to the number it had four years ago before the budget problem set in. the giants on a roll. you may have heard. >>> this week is the world series. >> yes. they shout out the detroit tigers in game 3 last night 2- 0. degeneres has more -- dennis o'donnell has more. >> reporter: yes. not since 1986 had a world series had back-to-back shutouts. prince fielder here, scutaro, crawford, double play. the giants got out of the inning unscathed. scoreless in the 2nd inning , hunter pence is on base. drive to the gap on right center field. a run scores. blanco is on 3rd with a rbi triple and the giants up 2-0. tigers have their shot. bases loaded in the 5th. vogelsong got quinton barry. and cabrera, the triple crown winner popped it up. vogelsong 5-2/3 of scoreless baseball. tim lincecum is just unhittable right now. 9th inning , sergio romo in to close it out. into buster posey's glove and the giants take game three 2-0. and the starters have been flawless in the fall classic. in the 18-1/3 innings, we have more. >> repor

this afternoon visited the fema headquarters in washington, participating in the briefing with a number of governors from virginia, maryland, delaware, and other states. he then spoke with reporters. >> keep up the good work. appreciate it. keep it up. >> good afternoon, everyone. obviously, obviously all of the -- all the start -- across the country are concerned about the potential impact of hurricane sandy. my first message is to all people across the eastern seaboard, the midlantic going north. you need to take this very seriously and follow the instructions of your state and local officials, because they are going to be providing you with the best advice in terms of how to deal with this storm over the coming days. we just had an excellent meeting with the team here, the various agencies in charge, including the department of defense, the department of energy, and others that will need to respond very quickly. we have had a chance to talk to regional officials as well. i just had a phone call with the governors of the potentially impacted states and cities in the region. at this st
the president is getting regular updates on sandy and says the federal emergency management agency, fema, has pre-staged resources to potentially affected states and areas head of the storm and fema remains in close contact with the emergency responders and states up and down the east coast, to ensure there are no unmet needs. governor romney planned to campaign in virginia and he talked with bob mcdonnell and decided at that state emergency personnel need today focus on storm prep and not political events and here is what the governor about the storm. to virginia, new jersey, new york, and along the coast in your minds and in your hearts, you know how tough these hurricanes can be and our hearts go out to them. >> reporter: governor romney will be campaigning in ohio today. back to you guys in new york. >> molly, thanks for the live report from our nation's capital. >> alisyn: for "fox & friends" in just two minutes. we have lots of updates. chances are, you're not made of money, so don't overpay for motorcycle insurance. geico, see how much you could save. when the doctor told me that i co
